SIDNEY –At 7 p.m. on Friday, March 3rd, acoustic folk and western musician Brad Fitch, known as Cowboy Brad, and the TropiCowboy band will take the stage at Sidney High School's Performing Arts Center to present their tribute to 1970s icon John Denver and the music that won America's heart. An Estes Park, Colorado native, Cowboy Brad has the look, the sound, and the skill to carry off the hope, optimism, and environmental awareness of Denver's most popular songs, including "Rocky Mountain High" and "Take Me Home Country Roads."

He has won many awards, including the Hawaii Music Award and the Cowboy Entertainer of the Year at the Aspen Cowboy Music and Poetry Gathering. Brad performs up to 300 shows each year and last performed in Sidney on April 12, 2019. For more than 10 years, Brad has performed John Denver tribute concerts, many benefiting a whole host of charities. His is also a familiar voice at Aspen's annual John Denver memorial concerts.

Cowboy Brad really connects with audiences. "The purpose of my music is to have fun and share that with others," says Brad. "If my music takes you to a pleasant place in your heart or your mind, then I have accomplished my purpose."

Brad is a veteran United States Coast Guard officer and has also served as a YMCA Senior Director and as a National Park Service Wilderness Ranger.
